I didn't compare their mis-deeds. I used an intentionally extreme example to show the fault in logic of the statement.

Doing some good deeds does not exonerate one for their mis-deeds. Whether that mis-deed was murder, or a stupid, insulting public statement. Same logic applies.

Right?

Yeah, I guess that it's only the home of the FREE, if you're an illegal alien, or a law breaking scum bag! For the rest of the folks, like you and me, we best watch our P's & Q's, or those pinko, commy, "other-country"-Americans watching out for their own damnable selves and their WALLETS (read: Al & Jesse) the good of "the American people", will come down and holler and protest like a bunch of morons gently suggest that THEY are RIGHT, and that WE are WRONG, and that WE are violating THEIR civil rights!

Re: Rutgers team speaks out on Imus remarks

If I ran a radio station I would have fired Imus because I would not want to be associated with someone who spews his kind of garbage. It has nothing to do with the 1st Amendment. If the FCC wants to step in and fine Imus I would completely oppose that.

But when Al Sharpton campaigns against Imus I want to vomit. Al brought us the Tawana Brawley fraud -- he claimed the cops and prosecutor were among her supposed rapists. And what about the Central Park jogger -- Al called her a whore and IIRC said her boyfriend did the deed. Where is his apology? I can't believe the media doesn't call that hypocrite on his past.

And while their at it, maybe Al Sharpton & Jessi Jackson should consider meeting with and apologizing to the families of the Duke lacrosse players.

If I ran the radio station I would have fired him a long time ago. He had a 1.o share in the NYC market for the past 15 years!!! He had NO RATINGS! None!

Now what Monvess should have done was fire him the next day after his idiotic statements. That way the jerk sharpton remember twana brawly?? Then he and jessie jackson would not have been in this picture!

Re: Rutgers team speaks out on Imus remarks

Political correctness at its worst. Selective one-sided outrage. A big brouhaha stirred up by hypocritical race pimps. IMUS is reaping what he sowed. No problem with that. But, are the saviors of America Al Sharpton and jesse Jackson? Have we sunk this low? A pox on MSNBC, CBS and their sponsors who are too timid to tell Al and Jesse where to go.

Re: Rutgers team speaks out on Imus remarks

i have never been an imus fan but im willing to bet this was just away of removing the last of the old school radio jocks and getting to replace him with a hip hop station. i would be very surprised if it didnt go that way.

the team should remember that if imus didnt make those stupid remarks no one would have heard of them altogether. he put them on talk shows, the newspapers and the media everywhere. guess there was some good from it.

Re: Rutgers team speaks out on Imus remarks

Hi Ho Hi Ho

This just in: Disney to hold press conference at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow. Word on the street is that Disney will apologize for the Seven Dwarfs singing "Hi Ho, Hi Ho" in the movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Disney plans to remove all items, currently for sale, associated with >>>this movie. This includes books, dolls, and movies.

Later in the week the Seven Dwarfs will appear on the Al Sharpton radio show to apologize and undergo a 7 hour grilling.

Jesse Jackson has not been contacted for comment on this. His office stated that he and his personal secretary were attending a meeting in the Bahamas . However, people at PUSH hinted that a large protest is being scheduled at Disney World.

Snow White could not be reached for comment.

Re: Rutgers team speaks out on Imus remarks

Did you hear the one about Don Ho dying?
It is said that he left many grandchildren still in diapers or he "left had many nappy bottomed Ho(s)"
Don't blame me; I heard it on NPR

Re: Rutgers team speaks out on Imus remarks

Now that this subject has died down a bit, I'll ask the question that's been bugging me since this whole mess started. What the heck is wrong with what Imus said about a bunch of these....

IMUS is back. Thank goodness. If you don't get the radio broadcast, you can see him on RFD TV, which will simulcast his program. Hopefully he won't make his program into pablum.
